In this article, the author presents his views on leases of land in relation to bird hunting. According to the author there are agricultural changes, flyway changes, water changes and temperature changes. The old days of putting a pit in every rice field and having a waiting list of those wanting to use it are gone. Ducks aren't working small fields as often. He informs that a field can lease for, typically, $3,000 to $6,000 for a 60-day season. The author says that he hears it all the time, folks complaining about the lack of birds, compared to the cost of leases.
